Can anyone recommend one for me?

I am 45 with dry skin, now starting to use at home peels, with occasional retinoids.

Need something very mild and low pH

Thanks

My favorite is Dr Hauschka cleansing cream - I'm sure many ladies will agree with me!!

Oh yes I agree with the Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream,
also look at the Dermalogica Cleansers as they will be gentle on your skin if you are using home peels.

I am 44 with dry/dehydrated skin and like Avon's cream cleanser, cleans, yet mild and no dry/taunt feeling afterwards. I recently tried one by Neutrogena's sensitive skin line that reminds me of Avon's. Smile

I'd suggest the Dr Hauschka cleansing milk/lotion, followed by the cleansing cream for exfoliation and cleaning out the pores. The actual cleansing cream will probably not be enough if you wear makeup - it is not meant to be an actual cleanser.

Another good choice would be the PSF green tea cleanser and the Janson Beckett organic cleansing milk.

Cetaphil gentle cleanser. You can use it with or without water.

In terms of creams or milks my favorites are:

Eve Lom
Green Tea from PSF
Thalgo delicate cleansing milk
Epiderm cleansing silk

All of them rinse off beautifully in water without tugging at the skin and dont leave a film, just soft, clean skin.

For a cleansing bar Iwould say HANDS DOWN the Epiderm Porcelain Clay or the Oatmeal. They are THE most luxurious cleansers in a bar that have no soap in them at all. My 77 year old mum uses the oatmeal, 65 year old mother-in-law the porcelain clay one (that is what I use) and hubby who has a thicker skin uses their tea tree one.

Have you tried OCM? There is lots about it on EDS. I love it! Good luck! Very Happy

Makeup Artists Choice soapless bar is really nice. I tried the green tea bar (there's also a shea butter bar) and really liked it. The PH of these bars is supposed to not interfere with glycolic acid peels etc. Smile

I'd also like to throw in Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel as I've used it again recently and liked it (and it's soap free Smile).
